In this section, we review how to decrease problem behaviors using various differential reinforcement procedures. Specifically, we will discuss various aspects of differential reinforcement, including the definition, types, functional versus contrived reinforcers, examples and procedures, considerations, differences between types, and guided practice.
Participants will learn:
1) What differential reinforcement is
2) Different types of differential reinforcement procedures
3) How to determine both functional and contrived positive reinforcers
4) Procedures and considerations to be aware of when using differential reinforcement procedures
